Republican Candidate Lashes Out At His Own Parents For Donating To His Democratic Opponent

Wisconsin GOP Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson is a bit upset after his own parents made the “maximum contribution” to his Democratic opponent. Each of Nicholson’s parents, Donna and Michael, donated $2,700 to Democratic Senator Tammy Baldwin in December 2017. Kevin, who seems to be a bit slow since the donation was reported in February, lashed out at his parents in a Fox News op-ed.

The title of the op-ed is: “I’m running for Senate as a Republican. My Democrat parents are so furious they’re backing my opponent.”

Nicholson said his parents turned “their back on me, my wife” and their grandchildren over the donations to his Democratic opponent.

Tender flower Kevin Nicholson claimed that his parents’ donation is a “representation of the intolerance” in the Democratic Party.

“Adding to this, they decided to make the maximum contribution to my Democrat opponent in my campaign for U.S. Senate in Wisconsin, an intentional personal blow that made headlines across the country,” Nicholson wrote. “It was deliberate – and it is a true representation of the intolerance of a political philosophy that stands on the false platform of tolerance.”

He even touted the ‘walk away’ movement — aka: social media propaganda that was taken over by Russian bots.

“Many others who have decided to leave the Democrat Party have also likely paid a personal price for their decision,” Nicholson wrote, referring to the walk away movement which isn’t really a thing.

“Too many believe that they have a club that they control – and would like to keep it that way since it keeps them in power,” Nicholson continued. “Those who demand that people be Republicans from birth in order to have a voice in the conservative movement would shrink, not grow our party. And their short-sighted perspective on people’s ability to mature as they experience life would keep us from bringing new Republicans into the fold like Donald Trump has done.”

Democrats are not fleeing their party. Kevin needs to grow up. I’m the only Democrat in my direct family and if I was in his place, I wouldn’t cry over a donation from my mother to my opponent. At any rate, if she was alive today, my evangelical mother would have been appalled by her party, and that thing they put in the White House. She probably would have walked away from her party.
